The Metro Spinal Clinic in Melbourne, Australia, has deployed IBM analytics software to track and record data to manage patients’ pain.

The spinal pain and intervention facility, which treats an average of 450 new patients per month, is primarily a day-care hospital.

The clinic implemented IBM SPSS Data Collection Web Interviews as part of a data collection system it has been developing called Clinical Intelligence.

The software records and collates patient data to enable doctors to track a patient’s progress over time.

Prior to going paperless with the new system, patients had to fill out a significant amount of forms, with the data then entered into an Excel spreadsheet.

The new system is developed to enable data to be entered online by the patient.

Metro Spinal Clinic musculoskeletal physician David Vivian told Computerworld Australia that the clinic collects data about patients will examine at how they respond to treatments.

"We do pain management treatments, like put electrical devices in people’s spines, burn nerves and do epidurals. IBM was selected due to its capacity to handle everything," Vivian said.
